Limbo is a place

Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.*
Carlos Casteneda

We are confronted with an unattractive direction that we have to take. For weeks or months we have to travel through limbo; the comfort and security of our familiar belonging lies far behind us. Where we will belong next has yet to become clear.**
John O’Donohue

Limbo is a place we must journey through.
Rather than the suspension of purpose and movement we might imagine it to be,
It is actually the unfamiliar,
An unexperience,
Until we allow to be what it is,
A real place our path with a heart is leading us through
for some transformation to occur,
But it is not a place for us to abide.

*Carlos Casteneda’s The Teachings of Don Juan;
**John O’Donohue’s Divine Beauty.
